Kenon's Annual Report on Form 20-F

Discussion of Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2015

Set forth below is a discussion of Kenon's results of operations.  Kenon's consolidated results of operations from its operating companies essentially comprise the consolidated results of I.C. Power Asia Development Ltd., formerly known as I.C. Power Ltd., ("IC Power").  The results of Qoros Automotive Co., Ltd. ("Qoros") and ZIM Integrated Shipping Ltd. ("ZIM") are reflected under results from associates.

IC Power

IC Power uses the following reportable segments in its consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2015:  Peru, Israel, Central America (which consists of Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador and Panama) and Other segments (which consists of Bolivia, Chile, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Colombia).

See Appendix A for IC Power's consolidated financial information. See Appendix B for the definition of IC Power's Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-IFRS financial measure, and for a reconciliation to IC Power's, and each of its segments', net income.

The following discussion of IC Power's results of operations below is derived from IC Power's consolidated financial statements.

Revenues

IC Power's revenues from sales of electricity decreased by $83 million, or 6%, to $1,289 million in 2015 from $1,372 million in 2014. This decrease was primarily driven by a decrease in the Israel segment's sales during 2015, and was partially offset by the acquisition of various businesses during 2014. 

Revenues by segment in 2015 were: Peru $448 million; Israel $326 million; Central America $337 million; and Other $178 million.

Adjusted EBITDA

IC Power's Adjusted EBITDA was $326 million in 2015, compared to $395 million for 2014.  IC Power originally reported an Adjusted EBITDA of $348 million for FY 2014. However, as a result of regulatory pronouncements (with retroactive effect) in Israel in the third quarter of 2015, IC Power adjusted certain of its provisions for 2014 and the first half of 2015, which resulted in a $46 million increase in IC Power's Adjusted EBITDA for FY 2014.  Set forth below is a discussion by segment.

  • Peru – relatively similar in both periods, with an Adjusted EBITDA of $152 million in 2015, compared to $154 million in 2014;
  • Israel $74 million decrease to $79 million, compared to $153 million in 2014, primarily as a result of the following:
    • a decrease in gross profit in 2015 due to lower prices resulting from the lower power generation component tariff published by Israel's Public Utilities Authority (the "PUAE") in January 2015 and September 2015 (the PUAE's power generation component tariffs form the basis for OPC's PPA prices), representing an average sales price reduction in 2015 vs 2014 equivalent to 21% without a similar reduction in OPC's gas prices; and
    • a strengthening of the U.S. Dollar against the New Israeli Shekel in 2015 by 9%, which affected both revenues and expenses.
  • Central America$21 million increase to $61 million, compared to $40 million in 2014, primarily as a result of IC Power's consolidation of full year of results of ICPNH (Nicaragua) and Puerto Quetzal (Guatemala) (acquired in March and September 2014, respectively) as well as higher generation due to higher-than-normal wind levels at Amayo (part of ICPNH). These factors resulted in an increase in ICPNH's and Puerto Quetzal's contribution to Adjusted EBITDA by $14 million and $6 million, respectively.
  • Other - $14 million decrease to $34 million, compared to $48 million in 2014, primarily as a result of the following:
    • an $11 million decrease, reflecting dividends received from Generandes/Edegel of $15 million in 2014 versus $4 million in 2015;
    • a $10 million decrease in CEPP's Adjusted EBITDA, resulting from the expiration of a PPA in September 2014; and
    • an $11 million increase as a result of a decline in Inkia's 2015 legal expenses.

Net Income

IC Power's net income (to Kenon and non-controlling interest) was $53 million in 2015, compared to $256 million in 2014, primarily as a result of the following items:

  • the factors above, which resulted in a $69 million decline in Adjusted EBITDA; and
  • $143 million decline in net income in 2015, resulting from one-time items that were recorded in 2014 in connection with acquisitions, dispositions and impairments:
    • $110 million net gain on sale from discontinued operations, net of tax, as a result of the sale of Edegel in 2014;
    • a $68 million gain on bargain purchase accounting recognized in connection with acquisitions in 2014; and
    • a $35 million impairment charge in 2014 in respect to one of IC Power's subsidiaries.

The above effects were partially offset by a $13 million reduction in taxes.

Net income (loss) by segment in 2015 were: Peru $31 million; Israel $22 million; Central America $23 million; and Other $(23) million.

Capital Expenditures

IC Power's capital expenditures were $527 million in 2015, primarily relating to expenditures on projects under development and acquisitions of $457 million, consisting of  CDA ($187 million), Samay I ($225 million), Kanan ($29 million) and the acquisition of AIE ($16 million). During 2015, IC Power's subsidiaries spent $35 million in capital expenditures for maintenance of existing facilities and a further $35 million for new projects, facility recovery and capitalized interest expense.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of December 31, 2015, IC Power had cash, cash equivalents and short term deposits of $410 million, plus restricted cash of $252 million, interest bearing financial liabilities of $2,565 million, and net interest bearing financial liabilities (a non-IFRS financial measure, which is defined as interest bearing financial liabilities minus cash and short-term deposits and restricted cash) of $1,903 million.

Business Developments

Acquisition of Energuate

  • In January 2016, IC Power acquired Energuate (a Guatemalan energy distribution business) and two smaller, related businesses. The total consideration for the acquisition was $265 million, which IC Power paid using a combination of cash on hand and a $120 million loan facility entered into in December 2015 (Energuate's total financial debt and cash on hand as of January 22, 2016 were $289 million and $68 million, respectively). Energuate provides electricity distribution services to 1.6 million households in Guatemala (representing 60% of Guatemala's distribution customers).

Assets Under Construction

CDA

  • As of December 31, 2015, CDA has invested an aggregate $834 million in the project and has completed 90% of the project, with 98% of the dam construction and 100% of the tunnel drilling completed, respectively.
  • CDA has an estimated construction cost of $959 million. The CDA plant has three turbines, each of which has a separate commercial operation date. IC Power expects the plant to be fully operational, with all three turbines in operation, in the second half of 2016.
  • As of December 31, 2015, CDA has received proceeds of $547 million from the $591 million available debt facilities for this project.

Samay I

  • As of December 31, 2015, Samay I has invested an aggregate $340 million in the project and has completed 97% of the project.
  • Samay I is expected to commence commercial operation in the second quarter of 2016 and has an estimated construction cost of $380 million.
  • As of December 31, 2015, Samay I has received $291 million in proceeds from the $311 million financing facility for this project.

AIE

  • AIE currently operates an 18 MW co-generation steam turbine, and is planning to construct a 135MW power plant, with construction expected to commence in mid-2016. IC Power expects that the total cost of completing the AIE plant (including the $16 million consideration for the acquisition of AIE and the construction of the power station) will be approximately $250 million. In January 2016, AIE entered into $150 million EPC contract in connection with the project, and the AIE plant is expected to reach its Commercial Operation Date in the second half of 2018. 

Kanan

  • As of December 31, 2015, Kanan has invested an aggregate $80 million in the project out of an estimated construction cost of $85 million (including $40 million of intercompany expenses relating to Puerto Quetzal's and CEPP's sale of the barges to Kanan) and has completed 98% of the project. Kanan is expected to commence commercial operation in the first half of 2016.

Qoros2

Kenon recognizes 50% of Qoros' results under "share in income from associates." The discussion below reflects 100% of Qoros' financial results.

See Appendix C for a summary of Qoros' consolidated financial information.

Revenues

Revenues increased by RMB594 million ($91 million) or 69% to RMB1,459 million ($224 million) compared to RMB865 million ($133 million) in 2014, primarily resulting from an increase in vehicle sales to approximately 14,250 cars from approximately 7,000 cars in 2014.

Cost of Sales

Cost of sales increased by RMB694 million ($107 million) or 68% to RMB1,713 million ($264 million) compared to RMB1,019 million ($157 million) in 2014. The increase in cost of sales is primarily due to the increase in the number of vehicles sold in 2015.

Selling and Distribution Expenses

Selling and distribution expenses decreased by RMB107 million ($16 million) or 11 % to RMB820 million ($126 million) compared to RMB927 million ($143 million) in 2014. The decrease reflects a reduction in advertising and consulting expenses due to changes in Qoros' 2015 marketing and sales strategy and cost cutting efforts. This decrease was partially offset by an increase in Qoros' marketing and promotion expenses.

Loss for the Period

Loss for the period increased by RMB321 million ($49 million) or 15% to RMB2.5 billion ($385 million), compared to RMB2.2 billion ($338 million) in 2014.

Liquidity

As of December 31, 2015, Qoros had total loans and borrowings (excluding shareholder loans) of RMB6.0 billion ($923 million).  Also as of this date, Qoros had current liabilities (excluding shareholder loans) of RMB4.3 billion ($662 million), including trade and other payables of RMB2.6 billion ($400 million) and  current assets of RMB1.5 billion ($231 million), including cash and cash equivalents of RMB257 million ($40 million). Qoros actively manages its trade payables, accrued expenses and other operating expenses in connection with the management of its liquidity requirements and available resources.

Qoros' principal sources of liquidity are cash flows received from financing activities, including long-term loans, short-term facilities and inflows received in connection with the capital contributions (in the form of equity contributions, or convertible or non-convertible shareholder loans) as well as cash flows received from vehicle sales. Qoros has drawn substantially all of the available amounts under its existing long term credit facilities and will require additional financing, including the renewal or refinancing of its working capital facilities, to fund its development and operations.

During the first quarter of 2016, Kenon made further loans to Qoros of a total of RMB275 million ($42 million), using cash on hand and drawdowns under Kenon's credit facility with IC, and Chery provided RMB275 million ($42 million) of shareholder loans on similar conditions.

Qoros will require additional financing to meet its operating expenses, including the renewal or refinancing of its working capital facilities.  Qoros is exploring potential additional financing from various sources.

Business Updates

Car Sales

In the three months ended December 31, 2015, Qoros' sales increased by approximately 2,280 vehicles or 89% to approximately 4,840 vehicles, as compared to approximately 2,560 vehicles in the three months ended December 31, 2014.

In 2015, Qoros' sales increased by approximately 7,250 vehicles or 104% to approximately 14,250 vehicles, as compared to approximately 7,000 vehicles in 2014.

In the first three months of 2016 (which includes the Chinese new year, a traditionally slower time for car sales), Qoros' sales increased by approximately 2,410 vehicles or 97% to approximately 4,900 vehicles, as compared to approximately 2,490 vehicles in the same period in 2015.

SUV and New Models Launch

In March 2016, Qoros launched the Qoros 5 SUV a mid-sized SUV, designed and produced with international standards of quality, safety and performance for the fast-growing SUV market in China.

Qoros has also launched the new 2016 model year versions of the Qoros 3 Sedan and the Qoros 3 Hatch. In addition, Qoros introduced two additional trims for each of the Qoros 3 Sedan and the Qoros 3 Hatch.

Dealerships

Qoros continues to expand its dealer network and open new points of sales. As of March 31, 2016, Qoros dealerships included 86 fully operational points of sales were fully operational, 8 additional points of sales under construction, and Memorandums of Understanding with respect to the potential development of 9 additional points of sales. As part of its strategy to increase its sales, Qoros intends to increase the size of its dealer network by creating incentives for its high-performing dealers to open additional points of sales.

China Vehicle Market Conditions

Following years of rapid growth, the Chinese passenger vehicle market experienced reduced growth rates in 2015. According to China Passenger Car Association, cumulative passenger vehicle wholesales in 2015 increased by 9%, as compared to 11% and 17% in 2014 and 2013, respectively. SUV sales increased by approximately 50% in 2015 compared to 2014 and by 55% in January and February 2016 from the same period a year earlier, while sedan sales in January and February 2016 decreased 12%, according to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers. The decline in the industry's overall growth rate that occurred in 2015 in connection with volatility in the Chinese financial markets and a slowdown in the Chinese economy resulted in increased competition in China's automotive market through price reductions.

Towards the end of 2015, dealers and OEMs offered customers a variety of inducements for customers to purchase vehicles, including price reductions. In line with many of its competitors, Qoros announced price reductions on all its vehicle models. It is expected that dealers and OEMs will continue to reduce prices and offer further inducements to purchase vehicles in 2016. Furthermore, in the third quarter of 2015, China's central government initiated a tax policy to incentivize domestic vehicle sales by reducing invoice prices by approximately 4.25%. From October 1, 2015 to December 31, 2016, passenger vehicles with engines that are 1.6L or smaller, which includes all Qoros vehicles, will be eligible for this tax incentive. The Qoros 3 City SUV and the Qoros 5 SUV will be eligible for this tax incentive.

ZIM

In the year ended December 31, 2015, ZIM carried approximately 2,308 thousand TEUs, as compared to approximately 2,360 thousand TEUs in the year ended December 31, 2014. The slight decrease in carried quantities was primarily due to the closure of the line from Asia to Northern Europe during the second quarter of 2014. In the year ended December 31, 2015, ZIM's revenues were approximately $3.0 billion, as compared to approximately $3.4 billion in the year ended December 31, 2014, reflecting a 12.2% decrease, due to reduced freight rates and a slight decrease in carried quantities. The reduction in revenues was offset by a decline in cost of voyages and related services, which decreased to $2.8 billion in the year ended December 31, 2015, as compared to $3.3 billion in the year ended December 31, 2014, primarily due to a reduction in bunker prices, as well as a decline in cargo handling expenses.   ZIM's net income to ZIM's owners in 2015 was $2 million, compared to a net loss of $204 million in 2014.

ZIM publishes its results on its website. For more information, see www.ZIM.com. This website, and any information referenced therein, is not incorporated by reference herein.  

Tower

On July 23, 2015, Kenon completed the pro rata distribution of 18,030,041 ordinary shares of Tower; the distributed shares represented all of the shares in Tower owned by Kenon, excluding 1,669,795 shares in Tower underlying certain warrants held by Kenon.

As a result of this distribution, Kenon recognized a $210 million gain, reflecting the fair value of the Tower shares on the date of distribution.

Kenon (Unconsolidated) Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of December 31, 2015, cash, gross debt, and net debt (a non-IFRS financial measure, which is defined as gross debt minus cash) at Kenon were $14 million, $118 million and $104 million, respectively.

As of December 31, 2015, the total drawings outstanding under Kenon's $200 million credit facility from Israel Corporation Ltd. were $110 million. In the first quarter of 2016, Kenon drew an additional $40 million under the credit facility. 

In April 2016, Kenon drew down the remaining $50 million under the credit facility. This drawing is intended to provide Kenon with additional cash resources in light of its liquidity position and its obligations under its indirect guarantees of Qoros' indebtedness. 

Kenon has provided back-to-back guarantees to Chery in respect of Chery's guarantees of certain Qoros' indebtedness. Set forth below is an overview of the guarantees provided by Kenon in respect of Qoros' indebtedness to date:

Deferred Tax Adjustments

Certain amounts for 2014 and 2013 for both Kenon and IC Power have been adjusted as compared to financial statements previously published to correct an immaterial error with respect to the deferred tax calculation relating to the effect of foreign exchange rate on non-monetary assets. 

Decisions by the PUAE (Israel's Power Regulator)

IC Power's financial statements as of December 31, 2014 and March 31, 2015 previously authorized for issuance included provisions (beginning in June 2013) by OPC for system management service charges and diesel surcharges in the aggregate amount of $70 million as of December 31, 2014 and $79 million as of March 31, 2015. In August 2015, Israel's Public Utilities Authority (PUAE) published a decision affirming that independent power producers in Israel would be obligated to pay system management service charges, retroactively from June 1, 2013.  As a result of the PUAE decision, OPC revised the previously recorded provisions, such that the revised balance of the provision as of December 31, 2014 and March 31, 2015 was $27 million and $31 million, respectively.

Because IC Power reapproved its financial statements in connection with its filing of a Registration Statement on Form F-1 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, this revision resulted in adjustments to IC Power's income statement (a $46 million and $6 million downward adjustment in cost of sales, and all line items below cost of sales, in 2014 and Q1 2015, respectively, which resulted in a corresponding upward adjustment in IC Power's Adjusted EBITDA during those periods) and in its statement of financial position as of the end of 2014 and Q1 2015.

In accordance with IFRS, Kenon revised its provisions as of June 30, 2015, such that the revised balance of the provision as of such date in Kenon's financial statements was $38 million, resulting in a gain of $52 million ($31 million to Kenon's shareholders after tax effect).

Kenon was not required to revise its financial statements as of December 31, 2014 or March 31, 2015, as Kenon's financial statements for these periods were already approved at the time of the PUAE's August 2015 decision. Accordingly, income statement figures in IC Power's financials for 2014 and 2015 differ from those attributable to IC Power in Kenon's financials for those periods.

IC Power's Non-IFRS Financial Measures

This press release, including the financial tables, presents Adjusted EBITDA, net debt and net financial liabilities, which are financial metrics considered to be "non-IFRS financial measures." Non-IFRS financial measures should be evaluated in conjunction with, and are not a substitute for, IFRS financial measures. The non-IFRS financial information presented herein should not be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for operating income, net income or per share data prepared in accordance with IFRS.

IC Power defines "Adjusted EBITDA" as for each period for each entity as net income, excluding net income from discontinued operations, net of tax (excluding dividends received from discontinued operations), before depreciation and amortization, financing expenses, net, income tax expense and asset write-off, and excluding share in income from associated companies, and negative goodwill. Adjusted EBITDA is not recognized under IFRS or any other generally accepted accounting principles as measures of financial performance and should not be considered as a substitute for net income or loss, cash flow from operations or other measures of operating performance or liquidity determined in accordance with IFRS. Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to represent funds available for dividends or other discretionary uses because those funds may be required for debt service, capital expenditures, working capital and other commitments and contingencies. Adjusted EBITDA presents limitations that impair its use as a measure of our profitability since it does not take into consideration certain costs and expenses that result from our business that could have a significant effect on our net income, such as financial expenses, taxes, depreciation, capital expenses and other related charges.

Set forth below is a reconciliation of IC Power's, and each of its segments', net income to Adjusted EBITDA for the periods presented. Other companies may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently, and therefore this presentation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies.
